Joseph Oregon State Airport Closes For Repairs in August 2011

Joseph State Airport near Joseph OR and the Wallowa MountainsSome of us more remote Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild members are located near the smaller state airports.  In the Joseph/Enterprise area of Eastern Oregon, you'll find three:  1910 Historic Enterprise House (walking distance from the Enterprise Municipal airport), and Belle Pepper's B&B and the Bronze Antler B&B (a long walk or courtesy transportation from the Joseph State Airport--pictured here).

Oregon geotourism takes on a whole different meaning from the air!  The moraines around Wallowa Lake are particularly beautiful when seen from above.

We're fortunate to have our area serviced by these two small airports because one is temporarily closing for maintenance.  Beginning August 2011, the Joseph State Airport will be closed for renovations.  Mitch at the Oregon Department of Aviation estimates the closure for 30 to 40 days.  Repair work includes the runway, connectors, ramp, and perhaps some grading.  Plan your flying into Enterprise for the month of August!

If you'd like more information, visit the Oregon Department of Aviation Website or give them a call during weekdays at (503) 378-4880.
